Listings in Moonlighters (Sitters and Tutors)
Welcome to the NeedQuest Moonlighting Project! A "Moonlighter" is a professional or student in the special needs field who babysits or tutors part time. Teachers, therapists or college students studying special education or a related field of study can list themselves as Babysitters or Tutors for families with children with special needs.
We recommend that you follow the below guidelines when hiring a sitter or caregiver:
- Checking References. Checking references is important part of selecting a care or service provider. We recommend checking two to three of the provided references.
- Conducting Interviews. Families should thoroughly interview potential caregivers and allow enough time to ensure that all important questions are answered.
- Running a Background Check. Running a background check is an additional step you can take to better understand the candidates that you are considering. It is not a substitute for checking references and conducting interviews. The results of a background check may not always be 100% accurate or complete.
